Work in Progress Wednesday

A few weeks ago I bumped into someone who had been at one of my trunk shows.  It turns out I had inspired her to try crazy quilting.  Yay!  She showed me her work and it was beautiful.  Her stitching was very fine and delicate.  Since seeing her stitching I have felt a little bad about my own.  My stitching is big and bold and this piece really emphasizes that.  I love this crazy quilt block.  The colours are cheerful and it makes me happy.  Why do I feel bad that my stitches are not fine and delicate?  I need to learn to admire someone else's beautiful stitching without allowing it to make me feel that mine is inadequate.  After all, I want to be the best me and if that is big and bold, so be it.

Amazing macros. My favorite is the bubbly blue one. What is it ?

Learning from others, getting inspiration from others, admiring other's work, that's very important. More important, though, is to be true to oneself - you ARE bold and grand and 'huge', be who you are! That is why WE admire and get inspiration from YOU!
